Concept is a compact three-seater powered by a 16.7 kW (23 PS / 22 hp) electric motor and a customizable exterior.
Honda has unveiled the Micro Commuter Concept at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The Micro Commuter Concept is a three-seater (1+2) vehicle that measures 2,500 mm long, 1,250 mm wide and 1,430 mm tall with a wheelbase of 1,860 mm. The concept is powered by a 16.7 kW (23 PS / 22 hp) electric motor fueled by a 3.3 kWh lithium-ion battery.
That gives the car a maximum speed of a little over 60 km/h (37 mph), a 0 to 60 km/h sprint time of 7.4 seconds and a range of approximately 60 km (37 miles). Battery charging takes less than an hour with a 200 V outlet.
Other features include the customizable exterior panels where owners can insert graphic sheets in just about any color or pattern. Another interesting technology is the multi-use loop battery which powers the vehicles systems and is charged via regenerative braking. The battery can be removed and used separately to power electronic items such as a laptop computer.
